Atlantic Could Yield Tropical Storm This Week

Atlantic Could Yield Tropical Storm This Week

By Alex Sosnowski, Expert Senior Meteorologist

July 21, 2014

A robust disturbance moving westward across the Atlantic could become the next tropical system to impact populated areas.

According to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski, “A well-organized disturbance rolling across the Atlantic this week will be in an environment favorable for rapid strengthening during the next few days.”

“It is possible we have the second Atlantic tropical storm of the season by the middle of the week.”

Thus far the Atlantic has only yielded one hurricane, Arthur, which brushed part of the East Coast during early July.

Bertha is the second name on the list of named Atlantic tropical storms on the list for 2014.

“The system will be moving over sufficiently warm water and low shear through midweek,” Kottlowski said.

Shear is a zone of strong, generally west to east flowing winds above the surface of the ocean that can disrupt tropical systems.
